Targeted for junior/senior/grad level students majoring in Information Systems, Enterprise Integration combines the basic concepts of integrated systems with practical experience and their use in a business environment. Understanding integration requires an understanding of the business processes within a firm and between a firm and its external business partners. The book will help students understand conceptually how linkages form between business processes and how these linkages are supported by ERP systems. Case studies are included throughout to provide a balance of theory and practice.
